Yep. TV has hit its lowest point, or its highest, I can’t tell. A man with a gigantic ballsack will now have his own TV show on TLC about the trials and tribulations of having a gigantic ballsack. The one hour special, aptly titled The Man With the 132 lb. Scrotum, will air in August.
The titular character (sorry, mixed metaphor), Las Vegas resident Wesley Warren Jr., is living with a rare (sweet Jebus, I hope it’s rare) medical condition called ‘scrotal lymphedema’ and will not be trying out for the NBA any time soon. His condition began one night when he had a sharp pain in his crotchal area. Then, according to TLC’s press release, ‘The tissue around his testicles began to swell and has been growing bigger ever since. It’s estimated that they were growing at an alarming rate of at least 3 lbs. per month.’
Woah, you’re still reading? Well, if a story about someone just having big balls wasn’t enough, apparently the show will crest when he’s offered free surgery and must choose between his two best friends and a life of freedom. Kind of like Trainspotting.
